The festival "Lights! Camera! Shorts!" is an excellent opportunity to have young people's creative skills showcased and recognised as well as providing awareness of young people's experiences and topics relevant to them that they can express through the medium of film. Young people whose films are shown at the festival will have the opportunity to win a number of awards including three awards that a specifically targeted to Secondary College students. These include Best film (open and secondary), Best Original Concept and the much coveted Audience Choice award, which is voted for on the night by those in attendance.

In 2010, the Monash Youth Festival was filled with an amazing group of people, with young and old and everything in between. With the cinema reaching its capacity there was a buzz in the air and there were many laughs even bore the lights went down, the curtains opened and the first film started. The cinema was silent as fellow film makers and audiences alike were transfixed by the brilliance of each film.
